Michigan's gymnasts could have
made the Ed Sullivan Show with
the performance they put on yes-
terday at the Events Building.
They not only clobbered Michi-
gan State and Indiana, but posted
a 190.825 team total in doing so.
This score was the best in the na-
tion this year, and set a Michigan
home record. State and Indiana
lagged behind with total's of
184.875 and 167.00 respectively.
Coach Newt Loken, exuberant
over the showing, exclaimed,
"We're hitting a terrific momen-
tum towards the Iowa and Big
Ten meets. I'm extremely happy
about the total scores in the six
Olympic events." Michigan's 163.-
.025 (without the trampoline) was
also tops in the nation.,
The Wolverines' performance
completely overshadowed a good
Spartan effort and a negligible
Hoosier output. Although both
teams had their sparse moments
of glory, practically every Michi-
gan event was successful in draw-
ing ooh's and ahh's from the fans.
The Wolverines team was pheno-
menal, hauling in 28.0 points.!
Charley Froeming pulled off a red

'viously delighted. Mike Sasich
'turned out a show on the high-
'bar, complete with a double fly-
'afiay at the end. It was good for
-a 9.3, his biggest haul of the year.
- The Wolverines posted 27 plus
iscores in the trampoline, parallel
'bars, and high bar.
The competition between Mich-
igan and Michigan State was
close, up to the trampoline event.
State trailed by only .05 points
at this spot.
The Wolverines got off to a bad
start, faltering in the floor ex-
ercises and side horse, with totals
of 26.85 and 26.30 respectively.
Dave Jacobs was under his best
form in the floor exercise and
received an 8.85 decision from the
judges.
Only Mike Gluck's 9.15 saved

f side horse, as the event was pla-
gued with mishaps. From this
point on, however, the 'show was
all Michigan's.
Indiana was never in the run-
ning, and at times it even was
embarrassing. The Hoosiers man-
aged to fall off the high bar twice,
and faltered in several events.
Their best event was the rings, in
which they scored a 26.45.
Michigan State had its own
share of near disasters, as Spar-
tans hit the mats on several occa-
sions. Norm Jolin practically som-
mersaulted off the trampoline.
Rich Murahata hit the floor, on
his side, as he dismounted from
the high bar.
Two other Spartans were nearly
wiped out, as they made dis-
mounts off the rings. State had
several outstanding performances,
however, with Toby Towson's floor
exercise being the most notable.
Coach Loken praised the out-
puts of both Sid Jensen and Rick
McCurdy in the all-around. Both
men scored in excess of nine
points three times. Jensen just
missed a 9.0 average by a fraction,
